Exporting your forum content
You can export your forum content, uploaded files, and members list by following the instructions below:
The forum content and members list exports are in CSV (Comma Separated Values) format. CSV files can be opened by any text editor or spreadsheet program, such as Notepad, Excel, or Google Docs. The CSV files are compressed in a ZIP file to reduce the time required to download them. ZIP files can be opened by a program such as 7-ZIP.
Export requests are limited to one request per 24 hour period.
Website Toolbox can provide an export of your forum data in SQL format upon request for a $49 fee. The fee must be charged because exporting the data in SQL format requires a technician to manually go into the database and extract your forum data, which is a time consuming and complex process.
Please contact us if you would like your data to be exported in SQL format.
